This short lived family sitcom tried to break new ground, but didn't penetrate as deep as it could have. It was about a couple who had not been married long (when the show began), but already had to deal with challenges. The husband was African-American, and his new wife was white. Both spouses had kids from prior marriages, and had to deal with stepfamily issues as well. Nancy Walker was a relative of the wife (I don't remember if she was her mother or her aunt) who openly disapproved of the interracial marriage. A lot of the gags centered around the kids, more than on the couple.
